why this settings on ipfw.conf don't work on FreeBSD 10:
firewall_enable="YES"
firewall_type="OPEN"
firewall_script="/etc/ipfw.conf"

it outputs this when trying to attempt to start firewall
/etc/ipfw.conf: add : not found

But the following settings in rc.conf works
firewall_enable="YES"
firewall_type="/etc/ipfw.conf"

Of coures ipfw.conf are identical in both cases.

:) Ok, I got it :)  My friend has ipfw built in kernel and in his case firewall_script="/etc/ipfw.conf" works. Why?  Or maybe because he has another version (as I know, FreeBSD 5.4)
